Welcome to Sakaue Laboratory

Taka Sakaue, PhD                            Associate Professor                            hsakaue@nd.edu

We are an interdisciplinary lab combining fluid mechanics and chemistry. Our research topics range from basic science to industrial problems, targeting 4 signature areas: Flow Measurement, Flow Control (Chemical Flow Control), Bio/Biomedical, and Green Energy/Environment.

There are 3 steps in our research activities:
1. Development of chemical sensors/coatings and methods
2. Characterization of #1
3. Applying the sensors/coatings from #1 and #2 to fluid science challenges

The unique facilities at the Sakaue Laboratory are set up to study #1 and #2.  We encourage potential research partners to contact us to schedule a visit to the lab.

We are always looking for partners to challenge #3.  Below, you can see many challenging areas we have investigated with our partners.
